EVERGREEN, Colo. (AP) - Those looking to take a scenic drive to the top of Mount Evans should get going, as the highway to the top is slated to close Oct. 5.

KUSA-TV reports (https://on9news.tv/1MWi1d5 ) that the Colorado Department of Transportation announced Monday that the highway will close next week.

CDOT typically closes the road after Labor Day, but since heavy spring snowfall and construction delayed State Highway 5’s opening, the department decided to keep the roadway open an extra 27 days.

State Highway 5 is scheduled to reopen the Friday before Memorial Day weekend, pending weather.
